Forum: naropa Subject: Literary history of the Beat generation

To all who visit the Naropa collection: We had to pull the Literary History of the Beat Generation lectures from the available audio on this site. This was done because the Allen Ginsberg Trust may wish to make a commercial product from these lectures and we do not want to be in competition with them. They hold the rights to this audio.

We hope to have this material available at some time in the future. Thanks for listening!

I'm MIGHTY grateful for all the content here and salute the wonderful generosity of the AG trust. I hope the money gained from the commercial product better enables them to accomplish their mission. Of course, I'd love to see the lectures return (a la the recent GD tumult) but I aint holding my breath. Any chance the AG trust will offer the complete 20 lecture series for sale? Finally, I know the word "archive" is already confused in the digital world, but this sort of thing doesn't help. All hail the Repository!!!

Thanks Naropa! Yr swell!
